Just as when playing the game, making a chess set requires a strategic approach. This book gives detailed woodworking advice and a range of design ideas for creating your own chess boards and sets. It begins with a short history of the game and the rules of play, followed by general guidance on scroll-saw safety, tools, materials and techniques.

With color photographs illustrating every step, it gives instructions for making a classic chess set, a chessboard, a simple storage box, a travel chess set, and a vertical chess set. It includes patterns for 11 additional variations of chess sets, in styles named after historical and architectural themes, such as Neo-Classic, King Henry VIII, Trojan, Paris, San Francisco and Venice.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 135 pages, 2010.
